Celebrating 28 years at the University of Delaware

Be a part of a multi-disciplinary research community while pursuing the doctorate in:
Chemistry & Biochemistry;
Biological Sciences; or
Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.

The Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) predoctoral training program provides an interdisciplinary education to graduate students that will enable them to apply atomistic and mechanistic approaches of chemistry to important biological and biomedically-related problems. Our National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 predoctoral training program has been on the University of Delaware campus for 25 years and is one of the 25 CBI programs funded nationwide by NIGMS. The University of Delaware’s CBI Grant is #T32-GM133395.
